Legislative Fact Sheet - Interstate Family Support Act Amendments (2008)

Act Interstate Family Support Act Amendments (2008)
Origin Completed by the Uniform Law Commission in 2008.
Description The 2008 UIFSA Amendments modify the current version of UIFSA’s international provisions to comport with the obligations of the United States under the 2007 Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance. 2014 federal legislation requires all states to enact the 2008 UIFSA Amendments as a condition of continuing to receive federal funds for state child support programs. Failure to enact these amendments during the 2015 legislative session may result in a state’s loss of important federal funding.
